Yes, I have two different colored eyes. It's a genetic mutation known as Heterochromia Iridium. To some people I remind them of their favorite Husky. Other's ask if I have super powers. I'm offended by neither.
My little brother Joseph is ten years younger and ten times cooler than me. He is also a performer and loves the beach, hence the shades.
Aside from being an actor I am also passionate about gardening. Here is a small vegetable garden I planted for my future In-laws in Connecticut.
During the warm months I work as a rooftop gardner in New York City. It is a very rewarding and flexible job that allows me to be in my favorite place, outside.
I am so grateful to have such loving and supportive parents. Here they are at their favorite place in New York, The Highline.
The violin I play belonged to my Great Grandfather, Chauncey Waterbury. Here is a picture of him with playing it circa 1920 in Upstate New York.
I graduated from Belmont University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Music in Musical Theatre. I owe so much to this fine institution.
Douglas Waterbury-Tieman grew up in Lexington, Ky. He started playing the violin and performing onstage in the fourth grade and has been doing so ever since.

Douglas graduated from Belmont University in 2012 as an honors student with a BM in musical theatre performance. He is also a professional fiddle player and recently appeared in Roundabout Theatre Company’s Robber Bridegroom as an onstage musician and clogger. His other recent theatre credits include; A Christmas Carol, (Ensemble/Musician) at Actor’s Theatre of Louisville; Fiddler on the Roof, (The Fiddler), at Studio Tenn; Lost Highway, (Leon), and Cotton Patch Gospel, (Jesus), at Flat Rock Playhouse.

Tieman, Music/Lyrics by Chris Rayis). Douglas is also a collaborative member of The Lobbyists, a NYC based band and theatre group who recently performed their concert-play SeaWife, at the South Street Seaport in collaboration with Liz Carlson and Naked Angles Theatre Co. Douglas owes whatever success he has had to the love and support of his wife Annabelle and his family.
